This tracks explores the world of STEM - giving a strong foundation to build on in the area of Physics, Technology and Engineering. Classes and Camps such as Early STEM, Intermediate STEM, Bridge Engineering, Pneumatics, Renewable Energy, Life Sciences, Rocket Science and Engineering, etc give a beginner as well as an advanced learner to reinforce their concepts and create their own unique models with hands-on building challenges.
This tracks explores the world of Robotics - whether it is with Legos or with several new Robot blocks that we have. Classes and Camps in this track allow learners to not only build the robots but also program them so that the robots perform the actions that they are designed to do. Several challenge problems (including some from advanced Robotics Competitions like FLL and Vex) are given to students for them to ideate and solve and implement.
Every month at our center, we feature one of our special kids as Science Mind of the Month. These students have demonstrated persistence and focus and have accomplished more than our expectations. All of them have participated in our programs for several months. Give them a Thumbs up and check out their photo albums by following the links.
Arjun is the Science Mind of the Month in Ashubrn for June 2015. Arjun is a 4th grader and has been attending Science Cosmos since he was in the first grade and loves a good building challenge. Arjun transferred to Ashburn from Chantilly. He started out with us in the beginning robotics programs, creating animals that are animated, and challenging builds such as the carousel and crane. He worked with electrical engineering courses and Mindstorms NXT and EV3 intermediate robotics.
Arjun’s favorite subject in school is math and his favorite movie is the Lego Movie.
He loves to play tennis and is in the top 50 Mid-Atlantic Club, but that is not all! He is also a Black Belt in karate, and he studies the guitar!
He is a well rounded student and his dream is to become a Tennis Professional when he grows up!
Samsher is our student (Electron) at the Ashburn Center. He loves to work on programming his NXT models and build Cool Robots. He started off as a Neutron and mastered the Into Robotics courses and graduated to the intermediate robotics course. Samsher is a fourth grade student who has been a member of our Science Cosmos Family for over two years. He loves to build with the variety of materials we have and always looks for the purpose and leaning component of his builds. When Asked, he says that math is his favorite subject in school. He is a very active young man and loves to play with his Science Cosmos friends in our gym after class. He is a friend to everyone and has made many friends at Science Cosmos and we look forward to his participation each week. He and his sister were students at the Chantilly center before they transferred. See his photo album and look at the cool models he build. To recognize him you can Like and comment on our Facebook post about him. See his photo album HERE.
Sahishnu is a long time student at Science Cosmos, and attends classes at the Ashburn center. He has been doing advanced EV3 Projects, and has some really Cool Robots he built that we were displaying for everyone to see at the center. He has worked on Data Science projects and learnt how to take temperature measurements and do experiments with the EV3 robot. He was a Student in Chantilly and transferred to the Ashburn center. He has completed many courses and deserves to be recognized as a Science Mind of the month. He is a bright student and is always on task with his projects. He loves to modify and revise his robot builds – a hallmark of a creative thinker. He is courteous to his teachers and peers and liked by all SEE SAHISHNUS PHOTO ALBUM
